Rosemary-Roasted Salmon

This has been our go-to recipe for salmon for a long time, mainly because it is so easy and we usually have what we need in the house. It adds very subtle flavors. I think the original inspiration may have come from Bon Appetit a long time ago. Theirs was in the oven, but in practice, I often do this on the grill.
